Things to do - Lancashire

The county of Lancashire in the North West of England, is one of the premier tourist areas of the UK. Lancashire is bounded by sea to the west, the Pennine hills to the east, with the Lake District to the North and the River Mersey and cities of Liverpool and Manchester to the south. It has a culture all of its own, beautiful scenery and in Blackpool the biggest seaside resort in Europe. Discover the beautiful Lancashire countryside of the Ribble Valley and Pendle Hill, home of the famous Pendle Witches, Lancashires seaside attractions like Blackpool with its Tower (Englands scaled down version of the Eiffel Tower) and the Big One - the biggest rollercoaster in the UK - both visible for miles around.

Explore Lancashires bustling towns and cities, or the heritage sites of Lancashires industrial past. Formerly the home of the cotton and coal industries, much of Lancashires income now comes from tourism and farming.
